Trekking @ Lug Valley, Kullu

Winter backpacking has always been fun. Winters in Himalayas are always unpredictable and gives a sense of adventure. This time around we planned to hike along the Lug Valley near Kullu. This stretch is not so well known and is of low altitude. This was chosen to avoid snow trek during this season.

Pre Trek: Our group of 5 arrived at Manali after a long and bumpy bus ride. We checked into a hotel got ready for pre trek shopping. Manali is well know for its woolens and we wanted to stuff a few more clothing into our already over sized bags. Striking a hard bargain with these vendors is a skill. Luckily we had girls in the group who were good at it. We met Kaushal at Manali who was organizing this trek for us. He had sent us the plan before hand and he informed us that he had arranged a taxi to take us to starting of the trek point.
